"Sharp Dressed Man" is a song performed by ZZ Top, recorded on the album Eliminator in 1983. The song appeared in the Miami Vice episode "Whatever Works".


  • One of ZZ Top's most famous guitar riffs appears in this song.
  • Just like the videos for "Legs" and "Gimme All Your Lovin'", they received heavy airplay on MTV, and all featured the same theme - a group of three women show up in ZZ Top's signature red car to help someone with their romantic ventures and their problems in the workplace (in this song and in "Gimme All Your Lovin'" it's a young man, and in "Legs" it's a young woman).


  • Billy Gibbons - guitar, vocals
  • Dusty Hill - bass
  • Frank Beard - drums
